What is the one place where cell phone hardware development has become stagnant? In the last few years phones have evolved from things we talked to people on into full fledged hardcore PCs. We can do just about anything on them now from web surfing to pretty intensive gaming. Each year our phones get faster and faster. The displays get brighter and clearer. Everything advances except the battery. For now all we can do to achieve better battery life is to throw in a larger battery...or is it. Software developers are doing all they can to develop more efficient firmwares for our devices. Some app developers have taken it upon themselves to create solutions.
